Introduction

With implementation of GSM-R GSM-R Global System for Mobile Communications-Railways now well underway on Europe’s railways, and interest developing beyond its frontiers, the ERTMS ERTMS European Rail Transport Management System /GSM-R project of the UIC has the task of maintaining the GSM-R specifications, developed under the earlier EIRENE project, managing the UIC roll-out plan for the system and handling issues and problems that arise as the work is progressing.

Through its constituent working groups the ERTMS/GSM-R project brings together existing and future implementers of GSM-R, assisting the former in realising their objectives and keeping the latter – and the railway industry in general - informed of developments. Close cooperation is maintained with ETSI – through ETSI Project Rail – and with the GSM-R Industry.

The GSM-R web-site is intended to provide its visitors with information on the system and its implementation state of the art, including the latest versions of the EIRENE specifications and the full range of specifications.

Enjoy your visit - we hope you will find it interesting and informative. If you do not find what you were looking for, or have any comments, please get in touch via the contacts page.
